This is a super easy-to-make, flaky french pastry crust with fresh herbs, roasted heirloom tomatoes, a little onion, and goat cheese. It's based on this David Lebowitz recipe: French Tomato Tart. Here's how to make it!
Heirloom Tomato Tart
heirloom tomato tartIngredients:
For the tart crust
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 4 1/2 ounces (9 T) unsalted butter, chilled, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2-3 tablespoons cold water
For the topping
  • 2 - 3 large, ripe heirloom tomatoes, thickly sliced
  • 2T fresh herbs of your choice (I used parsley and oregano)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 t lemon zest
  • 3 T grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 cup soft chevre (goat cheese)
  • salt & pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. To make the dough, place flour and salt in a large bowl. Add sliced butter. Using a pastry cutter, combine until the mixture has a crumbly, cornmeal-like consistency. Add the egg and 2 tablespoons water. Combine until a dough is formed. If it is dry, add more water. Press the dough into a tart pan to create an even layer on the bottom and a little up the side.
  2. Chop herbs and garlic finely, and combine with 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil. Brush on crust. Arrange tomatoes on crust, arrange onions on tomatoes, crumble goat cheese on top. Sprinkle with lemon zest, salt, and pepper, and the remaining 1 T of grapeseed oil.
  3. Bake 25 - 30 minutes, until crust begins to brown along the edges and tomatoes look nicely roasted. Enjoy!

We are still getting a few tomatoes from the garden. Since it's colder this weekend, we won't get many more. This recipe would be a perfect Autumn treat with the last of the tomatoes! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
